Cointelegraph Talks held a panel on May 5 with portfolio company TradeBlock director of institutional research John Todaro, and joined by representatives from Bitfinex and Poolin. The panel discussed the upcoming halving and the impact of the pandemic.
"COVID-19 has definitely had an impact on the space," TradeBlock director of institutional research John Todaro said of crypto on May 5, noting the presence of uncertainty and increased volatility. He said: "In the longer term, and being a month out from that event, I don't think it swayed any institutional investors and trader. I think they did use the opportunity to accumulate at lower prices, and I think we haven't really seen a slowdown in activity on that front from the institutional side."
